Mostly, folks are supportive and enthusiastic about our journey. A few, however, are mystified. Their response tends to be along the lines of, “Tell me, again, why are you doing this?” My reply, “You’re not a boater, are you.” In any case, this kind of undertaking requires a good sense of humor, which we have in bilge loads. Maybe this Wiley Miller cartoon could be a theme.
Or, maybe not.
Another regular question is, “Are you going through the Bermuda Triangle?”
The answer is no…because we’ll start out following the Gulf Stream Current, which takes us north, before heading east. That minimizes fuel consumption and maximizes speed.
The mind set very much includes safety and efficiency, though missing the Triangle has nothing to do with the former.
